The Crüxshadows - Fortress in Flames
Darkwave, Electro After that The Crüxshadows had released their album 'Wishfire' they released a remix-E.P with the name 'Frozen Embers', now the band does a similar procedure after their release of 'Ethernaut' and here is 'Fortress In Flames' which contains two new tracks and twelve different remixes.

Personally I find remix records to have a tendency to be very dull, especially when the remix jobs don't keep a high standard and also when there's too many remixes of the same track.

The two new tracks, "Dragonfly" and "Edge of the World", is exactly what you expect from The Crüxshadows, perhaps not that creative and new, but the songs are good and that's what counts.

The remixes doesn't impress me at all, either they are terribly alike the original or they aren't that well produced. The tracks that do make and impression worth to mention is "Citadel (Iris Remix)", "Citadel (Absurd Minds Remix)" and the little heavier rock version of "Cassandra" with the band Ego Likeness.

Overall this feels really dull and a great lack of imagination.
